No matter how serious an auto accident is, it can leave a person feeling shaken, especially if they are injured. In such situations, it is important to seek care from a medical clinic that will take your injuries and emotional state seriously. Since symptoms from auto accident injuries do not always manifest straight away, it is a good idea to seek medical attention at the first available opportunity. This can either rule out any injuries or be proactive in treating them. Seeking immediate medical attention after an accident is also crucial if you have auto insurance as the insurer will want to know that your injury was caused by the accident and not, for example, the result of a pre-existing condition.
Motor Vehicle Accident Services at Reddy Urgent Care refer to medical care, treatment, and diagnosis for any injuries suffered during a motor vehicle accident. Ultimately, the type of diagnostic testing and treatment required following a motor vehicle accident will depend on the nature and severity of the injuries sustained. Some diagnostic tests that may be provided at our urgent care clinic for motor vehicle accident injuries include digital x-ray imaging, ultrasound imaging, electrocardiography (ECG), general physical exams, and other types of diagnostic services. Treatment at Reddy Urgent Care could involve wound care, braces or casts for a sprain, strain, or broken bone, medication to relieve pain and inflammation, stitches for cuts or lacerations, as well as medical guidance on resting and avoiding certain activities.
Our goal with Motor Vehicle Accident Services at Reddy Urgent Care is to help patients who have experienced a motor vehicle accident injury to receive quick and thorough care and feel safe and reassured that they will be okay.
A motor vehicle injury is any injury that occurs as a result of a traffic collision with at least one motor vehicle, such as a car, truck, bus, or motorcycle, and another motor vehicle or pedestrian, which can include individuals walking, riding a bike, skateboard, or other types of non-motorized transportation.
Some common types of motor vehicle injuries include the following:
• Back sprains or strains
• Chest injuries, especially for drivers involved in a motor vehicle accident
• Common bruises, cuts, sprains and strains
• Facial injuries, such as a broken nose, dislocated or fractured jaw, broken teeth, fractured eye socket, or punctured eardrum
• Herniated discs
• Injuries to the internal organs
• Psychological trauma, such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or other emotional traumas
• Shoulder dislocations, fractures, sprains, or strains
• Spinal cord injuries
• Various types of fractures
• Whiplash, which is a neck sprain or strain
At Reddy Urgent Care we can treat most sprains, strains, fractures, dislocations, concussions, and other similar injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident; whilst we cannot treat every injury, we can treat those that are not life-threatening medical emergencies which would require emergency room treatment.
